The family and friends of Nicole are working together to raise money to help her pay her heart surgery bills. Please show your support!

Nicole was diagnosed with SVT in 2007 when she was 16 years old. SVT is supraventricular tachycardia, which is a rapid heart rate in the ventricular tissue. She had been having using with this for over 6 months and made many visits to the ER. The doctors kept telling her it was just anxiety. She finally made the trip to the heart hospital 3 hours away from her to find out what was really going on. She had her first surgery in October of 2007. With the surgery they go in and freeze and burn off some areas near her heart. She did her recovery and was happy to hear she could go back to her life of being a dancer for Just for Kix. In 2009, we were sad to learn that the loops in her heart that had been burned off had grown back. She ended up needing another surgery in April of 2009. Nicole did her recovery again and went back to her busy life. She has not had any issues again until recently and has been told she will need another surgery in the near future. They are sayng by December of 2012, she needs to have the surgery done again. Nicole is a full time college student and works 40 hours a week. She has been paying her debt off from her last two surgeries over the years. Insurances covered most of it but as everyone know they do not cover 100% of the costs. Nicole still owes enough that having another surgery will put her very far in debt again. I talked with her parents and they have told me that insurance pays all but 7,000 dollars of the costs for the whole procedure. Her parents are picking up some of it so there will still be about 4,200 dollars left due. I would like to raise money to pay for this amount so that when she is done with this surgery she does not owe anything for it. She will only have what was left from her previous surgeries. Nicole is a very caring person and I hope this is the last surgery she ever has to have. I pray that we can raise this money to support her through this stressful time.
